Fast & Easy Dinner: Spinach-Feta Calzone Casserole

Fast & Easy Dinner: Spinach-Feta Calzone Casserole

Spinach and feta are a classic Mediterranean combination. The salty feta perfectly complements the fresh greens. Tonight use this dynamic duo to make a delicious casserole sized calzone. The vegetarian filling — reminiscent of spanakopita — is a mixture of wilted spinach, sautéed onion, crushed red pepper, garlic, and feta.

bunnychick: I wouldn't rinse the feta before using it. Perhaps you should purchase a different kind, like one with herbs or that's not packed in brine. Hope that helps!

Should you rinse the feta cheese before using it? I have some packed in brine and the last time I cooked with it, it was SUPER salty (obviously!). Any prep suggestions? Thanks!

Partysugar, I have to ask again if you will marry me. I'm totally in love with you. I should call my husband and tell him what he's having for dinner. He'll salivate.
